Moi and 25 random facts

I am a big fat sucker for blog posts where people share random facts about themselves, maybe its because I'm  nosey, but I find it provides a real insight to the blogger themselves and if you want to write a wee post about yourself, well then I'll be there reading it and rooting for you, so go on right ahead and be sure to let me know about it.

The reason? 

Well, normally when you follow a blog you really love reading and admire, you take it for granted or assume that you know that person really well and that all is perfect behind their screen. So, when they take the time to tell you a bit more about themselves, I personally really enjoy this process and type of blog post and when I really enjoy someones blog and their style of writing / sharing info, I like it even more when they feel confident enough to share info about themselves be it personal or otherwise.

Am I making sense? No? Didn't think so! Read on so.

Seeing as I want to be a better blogger, I thought I'd share some random facts about little ole me. Perhaps you're interested, perhaps you're not? Sharing these insights don't necessarily make me a better blogger, but perhaps it counts towards adding a tad more personality to this ickle interweb space of mine.

1. I'm a bit of a control freak at times. I tend to think my idea is the best idea....actually scrap that, I nearly always think that! ha!

2. I can hold a tune - meaning I'm not a bad singer. I've sang on stage and at weddings too! (not at the end of the night drunk type singing, but you know, when the lady in the white dress is walking up the aisle.)

3. I own too much makeup, but I still buy more.

4. I don't tan...ever. I'm always the whitest person on the beach and people always stare at me. Except in Asia where people have walked up to me and touched my skin. I love you Asia.

5. I have lots of regrets. (Too soon to share them, I'm afraid)

6. I think I don't have great skin, but others have told me differently. I keep looking at wrinkles!

7. I'm 5ft 4 inches but would love to be taller

8. My boyfriend is called Robert. We've been together over 6 years and he's 6ft 5 inches tall. He's a dab hand at reaching things on the top shelf.

9. I'm scared of flying, but it doesn't stop me from travelling anywhere and I have cried on flights.

10. I can't drive. My boss has tried a million times over to get me driving. I joke with him that if he were to see me drive in his lifetime it would be his single greatest achievement.

11. My favourite childhood film is 'Flight of the Navigator'. I fancied the kid in it.

12. I love days off work when I don't have to wear a suit and instead get to wear colourful clothing

13. I secretly would like to wear glasses, like proper geeky ones!

14. My dream car is a vintage mini or a nissan figaro

15. I really, really, really want a dog. So bad.

16. My dream career as a kid was to work in Visual Display. It still kinda is.

18. If I'm in a bad mood, I usually take a nap so I don't have to think about why I'm in a bad mood

19. I love baking, but usually try and refrain from eating all of it.

20. I'd love to have the guts to get a really, cool and out there hairstyle.

21. Most of the time, I'm happiest when on my own because I love quiet time.

22. I still really, really, really want a dog. This point deserves two spots on this list.

23. I collect notebooks. I never fill one but I always keep them.

24. Whenever I go on holidays, I also check to see if they have a local craft shop.

25. Finally, I've never had a manicure.

So there you have it, 25 random but no too personal facts! Any of these resonate with you or perhaps you'd like to contribute and share a few below.


  1. I have just really enjoyed reading this :) Thank you for sharing!! Got me thinking its about time I did something similar..... x

  2. Nosey-ness is great, there's nothing I like more than people watching in a cafe - these kinds of bloggy posts are just like internet people watching!

  3. I always wanted to wear glasses, even though I never needed them - I was really jealous when my sister was found to be short sighted!

  4. I love this! And I agree, you get a better sense of the blogger from these little facts. I loved reading these about you :)
